    I suffer from clinical depression and my Doctor has prescribed this drug for me. I am not sure that I should be using this, as I do not suffer from bi-polar or schitzaphrenia. I also take 3/5mg citalopram. Please advise as to whether this is a suitable drug for my problem.

    I took Zyprexa to manage my perimenopausal hypertension and erractic mood. It was like being on vacation. It worked great, BUT the weight gain is HORRIFIC.

You become ravaged and eat your way through the kitchen. I would think about ... Show Full Comment
